Photo detail

Some of the many birdhouses Marianne Sansour has painted in recent months. The detailed and creative hobby keeps her busy and keeps her mind off her progressing disease. She also has adopted a butterfly motif throughout her house and garden – and a butterfly tattoo on her right forearm — because the butterfly and its symbolism of rebirth, is the symbol of ALS.
